11 (The Lord God of your fathers add to this number many thousands, and bless you as he hath spoken.) 12 I alone am not able to bear your business, and the charge of you and your differences. 13 Let me have from among you wise and understanding men, and such whose conversation is approved among your tribes, that I may appoint them your rulers. 14 Then you answered me: The thing is good which thou meanest to do. 15 And I took out of your tribes men wise and honourable, and appointed them rulers, tribunes, and centurions, and officers over fifties, and over tens, who might teach you all things.
16 And I commanded them, saying: Hear them, and judge that which is just: whether he be one of your country, or a stranger. 17 There shall be no difference of persons, you shall hear the little as well as the great: neither shall you respect any man's person, because it is the judgment of God. And if any thing seem hard to you, refer it to me, and I will hear it. 18 And I commanded you all things that you were to do. 19 And departing from Horeb, we passed through the terrible and vast wilderness, which you saw, by the way of the mountain of the Amorrhite, as the Lord our God had commanded us. And when we were come into Cadesbarne, 20 I said to you: You are come to the mountain of the Amorrhite, which the Lord our God will give to us.
